A MYSTERY OF THE FRONTIER.
Who WHS Sir Geoffrey Cntlicnrt nnd > Yhero Are ills
Southward through ( ho valley run : the
old Santa Fo trail. To the welt rlso the
foothills , and back ot thvm the mountains ,
snow-capped still In Juno , ami to the on at
BtrotctiM the parched plain. Tha bed ot
the Btrraui , many nlzea too largo for the
thrr.nl of water Hint finds Its way past
tha thirsty mouths of the Irrigating ditches.
Is Kinged on ono side by low \vlllo\va and
shut In on thu other by n steep bank ot
red gravel , amid which nro numerous bowl
ders ot mountain granlto. The old trail
Itself Is broad and plainly marked through
most of Us course. For a short dlat.inra
a part of It , shut oft by a barbwlrc tonce ,
has been cut out of oxlatcnco by the Mr-
rows of en alfalfa field , and then a railroad
grade leaves no ilgn of Us cross-tug , but
beyond It rises clear to the summit ot the
hill , where the wind storms ot half a
ronttiry hive blown a gorge twenty feel
j deep through the creel of the ridge. On
this side of the barb \vlru fence the old
Sant.i Fo trail Is a pirt ot the mnilern uounty
road , and , except for a lengthened gully ,
which mu ! < tfl A detour neco. sary , or tor a
bridge over ono end of the buffalo wal
low , the olJ trail Is very much the unino
ttxliy as when Kit Carson rode ilor.g It
or the first f ttlcn wHth their canvas.covercil
wagons widened the Indian trail to a high
way.At Intervals of halt a ilozon miles along
the old trnll are the road houses , where the
travelers ured to sUp for mcala or for a
nlght'a shelter. Square , box-IIUo housea
they ire , with four-cornered roofs and sldca
of unpatnted boards , browned by thn Derce
nun and the knots emphasized by the EAIHI
blasts that sweep around them. Itwltlo
they are much allko , kltchun and ( llnlnR
room and big s'ltllng room , where travelers
by stage or saddle used to gather befcro
the big open fireplace nnd In long avcnlngii
tell their ftorlcs of strange adventure In iho
western wilds , of narrow escapes from wild
beasts and the wilder Indiana , or ot dan
gers from lire and flood , ot golden treasures
found and lost again , weird traditions re
peated at first hand from an older au.l
fsst dlsippearlng race , nnd the fantasies
which eomu 'Into the heaJs ot men who arc
much alone , who think much and arc not
much given to talking.
1 htul alway.i suppossd that It was orn
of th se old houses which stands quite cloec
to the creek , about half a mlle from the
place where the old trail IB eut across by
the barb-wire fence. True , the house In
question wca set back from the road tome
little distance , which was unusual , and n
close In-pcctlon mlg'it have dlscowicd some
thing pretentious and uncommon about It ,
but It had the same air of desolation as the
others the same square roof end unpalnted
sides , 'the same empty window frames and
Jt was n rainy afternoon In Miy that I
had first a nearer vle\v of the old house. I
was haullm ; a load of flour to a Inreo ranch
out about sixteen miles from the railroad ,
and the big cottonwood trees that lined the
sldr > Inne to tlio old house , though broken
and Blntt-rcd , still Heemod to offer a partial
shelter from the heavy shower that swept
suddenly down , out of the mountains. As I
turned the horses Into the lane , my thoughts
went back toward the old times , nnd I fan
cied how the house must have looked when It
was something more than the empty shell of
a llfo that had passed away. The upper
window , I Imagined , must have been in iho
room of the mistress of the Inn , or porharn
of the eldest daughter , nnd BO ivlvld was my
fancy thit I almost saw a dainty lace cur
tain fluttering behind the paueless window
Having found a sheltered place for horses
and wagon , I entered the old house. The
room to the left of the main entrance am
Immediately below the window I had ob
served from the lane had evidently boon
the sitting room. I saw nt ouco that this
had been no inn , nnd I was attracted by
a carved mantelpiece of oak or some other
hard wood a rare thing , Indeed , In early
days in Colorado. It was surmounted with
a shield of wood carved with a coat of arms ,
a running stream represented by several
wavy cross lines , a tree which might have
been an old-world linden or a now-world cot
tonwood and the motto , cut In wull-fash-
lonea letters , "We meet beyond. "
Such a mantelpleco In a house In Colorado ,
which must have been built at least thirty
years ago , Is nothing less than marvelous.
The wood must have been brought as far
as from the other cildo of the Missouri ,
and the builder who made ot It a part of
his frontier dwelling must have been a man
of more than usual means and of uncom
mon descent. What strange freak ot for
tune could have brought to Colorado In the
60's a man entitled to a coat of arms and
wishing enough to display it to bring oak
from the east for that purpose ?
It was with a curiosity very much aroused
that I started to explore the upper part
of the old bouse. The stairs were still firm ,
but covered with duat. Aa I started to
ascend thorn a chipmunk chattered at mo
from the upper landing , and that might
have accounted for the fact that the dust
along the center of the steps had been dis
turbed an though by passing feet , or It may
have been that a wayfarer Itko myself had
been attracted to explore the deserted
The upstairs rooms contained nothing wor
thy of remark , with the exception of tlio
room the window of which overlooked the
lane , and which was directly above the room
containing the mantelpiece. Here I found
a panel of smooth wood , upon which had
been painted a coat of arms dlmllar to that
which had attracted my attention down
stairs. The window sill on the south bldo
ot tlio room formed a broad Beat , and as
It was sheltered from the rain that was
still drifting In sheds outuldo , I seated
myJelf there and puzzled a little over the
mystery I lud found.
And then a queer thing happened , Maybe
I fell tfilccp and maybe I did not. but t
saw plainly In the vacant room a table and
a chair nearby , a chair of quaint , old-fJsh-
loned pattern , and on the table was a news
paper yellowed with ago , a Philadelphia
paper , bearing date of May 12 , 1857 , and In
the column which was nearest to my eye
was a paragraph to the effect that agents
of the Ilrltlsh government were In the city
In pearch of ono Qeoffry Cathcart , who had
left his home In Kngland under a mistaken
connection of his name with some grave
political offense. The paper added that the
mnn eiippcred to bo the one sought had
recently loft the city with hlfl two chlldron ,
and had gone to aome unknown place In Iho
west. Near the nownpaper I aw a lady's
work basket ; there wore curtains at tlio
windows and ruga on the floor ; the grizzly
skin ot a hair and a costly fabric ot tha
east , and then I surely hoard the rtutle ot
a skirt and a girl came Into the room anJ
sat down In the Jew rocking chair. Face ,
features and hands of an aristocrat , the
clear brown of a ronploxlon ; that neither
burns nor frocklen In nun and wind , airs
of a princess born to rule In any world she
finds herself and the frank glance of the
wild creature that knows no evil and fears
none. She neemcd Intent on some work
ihn held In her hands , and then raised her
head , listened , rose , mw me , omlled and
was gone , leaving behind a faint odor of
the ronea she wore In her hair.
I turned my gaze again to the room. It
was bun. as when 4 first entered , but
a ctinlieam lingered on the coat of arms on
the panel and brought out In almtat Htart-
ling vlvldiitss the words of the motto :
"The Htorm has pasto'l. "
On the stairway as I descended I found
i withered rose.
About a half mile from the old homo down
near the barb wire fence Across the old trail
I met Jim Ned , riding that mean buckskin
broncho that no ono else could rldr. and
that no one that I ever knew over wanted
to. Pioneer , trapper , scout , guide , stage
driver , jack of all trades In his honest days
and knave ot all In his dishonest ones , Jim
his lived nlnng the old trail "since I wan
old enough to chew tobacco , " and that WAJ
quite early. If anyone knew about the old
notice It would bo Jim. Ho after a few
preliminaries to conversation I "wore him
to honesty by the oath of ihe plains ,
"Now straight Jim , what do you know
about the old houno bar-Is there * "
"Well , " he ald. "seems to roe It wouldu'
bo mtiro'n about three-quarters unfair If I
asked you what you knew about U , feeing
as you take such a moro'n usual Interest

"Back pretty near as far as I can remember -
member there came a man to that house , or ,
rather , to the place whcru that house Is
now , for , naturally , there wasn't any house
there then , not having been built. He was
a , tolerable oldish man , rather tall , with
grayish whiskers and kinder stoop-shoul-
di-rod. Ho came In a wagon , nnd ho hail
two klda with hint , a boy about 18 I should
say , and a girl maybn a couple of years
younger. They camped down there near tha
creek , and 1 suppose ho liked the country ,
or something ; but anyway , ho settled right
there and built that houno. All the bricks
had to bo hauled from Pueblo San Carlos \va
called It them days snd they said some o
the lumber came clear from Denver. The
old man'a name was Cathcart or nomethlitff
Ilko that , but most everybody round bora
called him Jeff , though the old man didn't
seem to Ilko that very well. Jeff wont Into
the cattle buslncso , though I don't guess
ho over made vury much at It , but then , ho
didn't have to , for nvcrybo.ly know ho used
to get money from somebody somewhere ;
and four times a year ho used to K > to Den
ver , and Dutch Jo says ho seen htm there
once blllng drunk , but I don't bnllcvo that.
Hu wan always kinder queer and suspicious
of strangers , and novcr talked much about
himself , and didn't taku much Interest In
politics nnd onto when the boys offered to
make htm jiutlcu ; nt thu peace ho retuaed In
a wjy that made some of thorn kinder sus
picion that hq wasn't naturalized ,
"Jeff's cattle used to rangn mostly over on
the west side ot tlio Fountain , and ho had
a bunch of little yallcr milk cows that ho
thought a heap of , and that gave inoro
milk for their slr.o than any critter 1 over
saw , except a bluu cat , and ho used to bring
thorn over the creuk to the house every
night and shut them up In the corral just
as though they didn't have m-iimi enough
to stay out over night and maybe they
hadn't. And one evening along the latter
part of May there was a big thunder storm
coming up over the mountain , and Cecil ,
that'o wh.tt ho called the boy 1 don't know
what kind of a language tlmt Is , and I novcr
hoard of anybody else with that name-
but , anyway , the boy went over across the
creek after thu cows , and pretty soon there
came one of thu regular kind of cloudbursts ,
and befort ; long that llttlu creek was boom
ing so that no kind of a circus animal
couldn't have crossc-d It , let aluno one of
thorn uawcd-off yaller cows.
" 1'retty < ioon It got dark , and still the boy
didn't come back , nnd after n whllo .Miss
Pretty , that's what wo used to call thu girl ,
though Bho hud another kinder outlandish
name , thought she heard somebody or some
thing hollering over across the crock , and
nothing to do but she must go out and BCO'
what it was.
"And neither ono of them Iclds evur came
"In the morning some of the neighbors
found thu old man lying on thu lloor of the
sitting room , and everybody reckoned ho d
had Bomo kind of a nt In thu night time. Ho *
only got well enough to tell about the two
kids going out In the storm , nnd along 111
the afternoon he went over thu rangu. AnJ
nobody over found any feign of thu kids ,

the crock , unless thu mountain lions got
the hey , for they wns mighty plenty that
year , and Dutch Jo said ho seen a whaling

Just then the road branched. With a
"Hoo.l-bye , partner , " Jim turned oft on the
sldo road that leads to the little log cublti
where ho Is endeavoring to pass his latter
days In monotonous if pectablllty , and I'
continued on down the valley over the old
Santa ls trail , along which Oeoffry Ctith-

their frontier homo so many years ago.

The Hookman has an Interesting artlclo
on Artemus Ward , dealing at considerable
length with his experiences in London.
Whan ho made his first appearance In that
city he enriched his programs with a note
explaining that ho would call on citizens at
their residences and explain any Jokes that
they did not understand , and It Is said thatf
there was reason enough In such an offer ,
In vlow of the fact that John Bright , the
eminent statesman , was reported to have
remarked , after attending one of the hu
morist's performances :
"I must say I can't see -what people find to
enjoy In this lecture. The Information In
meager , and Is presenited In a desultory , dla-
connected manner. In fact , I can't help
uurlotisly questioning some of the state
ments , "
Artemus Ward was fond of tolling stories
and' Jokes at his own expense , and he had a
habit when upon the lecture platform o
purposely making people laugh at his own
awkwardness , but ho had ono experience
that he never referred to. During a part of
the time that ho lived In Cleveland ho lived
at a fashionable boar. ' ng house on Soscca
street , and was In the habit of cutting up
all sorts of capers there , to the amiuomont ,
Bometlini'S , but as often to the conuteniaUcci
of the other boarders , most of whom looked
upon him as a "half-baked fool , "
Ono of his favorite Jokes was to ncuro
women lies'ly to death by pretending to fall
downstairs. The parlor where the iboardern
congregated was connected by a largo arch
with the hall , whore the stairway was , prac
tically making ono big room of both. Kvery
tlmo a new boarder or a stranger happened
to bo prcYf lJ , Mr , Urowno , as he was known
around the house , would cough , at the top
of the stairway , to attract attention , then
pretend to trip on something , and go tum
bling headlong downward , always managing
to catch the ratling and thus escape In-
Jury. The women would , of course , yell and
makii a gicat fuss over him when lie picked
hlniHi'lf up. nnd hn would generally mauigo
to get off some droll remark that would sob
Hut this wort uf thing got tlrrsomo after
awhile , and one day some ot the men board
ers decided to stop It , A young woman had
Just arrived at thn house , and It was a fore
gone conclusion that Brow no would take
his customary tumble at the lint oppor
tunity , So , promising the landlady that they
would have th'ngs properly repaired , after ,
the trouble was over , thu Joker's cnemlcH
Hawed the spindles In the balustrade almost
In two , leaving the rail so that a nllght
wrench would break It loone.
That evening all the bbitdorx r.ongrn-
gated In the parlor , the newly arrived young
woman , who had been lot Into the secret ,
among thorn. They didn't liavo long to watt
for their victim. In panting up to his room ,
lirowne saw that a stranger was presHit ,
and , alter making h.s toilet , h started to
go down stairs. Ho coughed loudly several
times while patslng through the upper ball ,
and then , when he saw that everybody was
looking at him , stumbled and shot out Into
Hut when he grasped the rail ot the bat-i
ustrade there was a sharp crack , followed
by a crash , and the man who afterward
became famous as A. Ward lay stunned
at the bottom of the Malrs , with a skinned
oftow and bleeding nose.
That ended the stairway Joke , and Browne
soon moved to another boarding house ,
